Jason Chimera has drawn the ire of Coach Trotz and will be a healthy scratch on Saturday night.

Andre Burakovsky will suit up in his place. "You’ve got to learn from it," Chimera said of his benching. "I think it’s embarrassing as a player when you get sat out. A player that’s played a long time, I think it’s embarrassing but you’ve got to move [on] from it. You can’t really let it get to you too much." Chimera took an interference penalty that lead to Nick Foligno's overtime winner over Washington on Thursday. He has six points in 28 games this season.

Jason Chimera had a goal and two assists Sunday.

The three point night gives Chimera 12 goals and 29 points in 56 games this season. He really does not have overall value in fantasy pools as there are too many similar type players and Chimera does not distinguish himself in any one category in traditional pools.
